Anyone heard of it/been to any gigs there?
I have an opportunity to book one of my bands in there. Worth it
Just out of interest, who is offering you a gig? is it a Carl? Or a Si?
The mill is alright, there's a small upstairs bar and a bigger theatre, but your real problem is Banbury itself - unless there is a shitload of good advertising, you better not get your hopes up for attendance.
how do you know Carl??
Been putting on Gigs in Banbury for ages now, to varying success (If we're talking about the same Carl) used to put my band on loads. To be fair, he does have a pretty good crowd of regulars that go to his shows now.
He's a cool guy! I'm friends with Craig - that's how I know him.
Hmm I can't really help other than say he has a fairly regular crowd of kids, but no one really travels TO Banbury for gigs, just people that live there. Any idea who you'd be playing with? Ahh I kinda miss Banbury gigs, in a local gigs kinda way.
so far. crowd of 'kids'...? by this you mean?
Any suggestions of other venues oxford/milton keynes centric?
and have only been there once or twice. If my memory serves me right its not a bad venue, but it seems to just have covers bands playing these days. I'd love to see some decent bands in Banbury, so despite having no idea what sort of bands you have available, i'd say yes!
There's a fairly big student population from the tech art college if that helps your decision.
Promise i'll go!*
